Travis – “Animals” (Stereogum Premiere)

Travis – “Animals” (Stereogum Premiere)

Here’s a treat for everyone who’s ever wondered “Why Does It Always Rain On Me?” Or who remembers when Coldplay came on the scene seeming like a Travis ripoff band. Or who simply appreciates a well-written pop-rock tune with a light, effortless touch. Yep: Travis are back tomorrow with a new studio album, Everything At Once, and today we’ve got the final advance single, “Animals.” The track finds Fran Healy’s gentle tenor soaring in almost Bono-like fashion over a stuttering symphonic background, all of it grounded by the simple, steady craftsmanship that first put Travis on the map. Check it out.

Everything At Once is out tomorrow, 4/29, on Red Telephone Box. Pre-order it here.
